This paper focuses on the importance of printed circuit boards (PCBs) as components in aircraft and how their failure, either by corrosion or in electronics, can result in catastrophic losses. Reviews some typical experiences and various failures with PCBs, and the attempts to protect them using conformal coatings, and also stresses that this is of increasing importance as these systems become smaller.
